Great character study...
17 March 2008 | by eggartrealtySee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this movie last night at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. Several cast members including John Cho and Director, Michael Kang were in attendance for the screening.

The film was sold out and there was a line around the block to see this one. It was well worth the wait of standing in line for.

Without giving too much away it was an excellent character study of Korean-Americans (both American-born and foreign-born). Culture clashes, deceit, protecting loved ones, and "owing" your own culture are portrayed here in fine detail. Great action sequences too.
